New Scholarship Established for Belarusian Students

June 20, 2012

Fifteen alumni representing the CEU Alumni Chapter in Belarus initiated a volunteer-driven fundraising campaign in 2011, which resulted in the successful establishment of the Vitali Silitski Supplementary Scholarship at CEU in memory of the late CEU alumnus and distinguished Belarusian scholar. The scholarship, in the amount of 1500 USD (or 750 USD per annum), is intended to be awarded to one outstanding CEU Belarusian student every year. The first recipient of the scholarship is two-year MA student Tatiana Kliatskova (ECON '13). In light of the inspiring volunteer participation that has made the scholarship possible, the CEU Alumni Chapter in Belarus and the Alumni Relations and Career Services (ARCS) office will continue to work together to perpetuate the Vitali Silitski fundraising campaign as part of the annual CEU Alumni Campaign.
